To water, or not to water

Your best bet is put the tray into a tray of water where the compost will soak the water up & drawing the seeds down, remove the tray from the tray of water after 20-30 minutes & put the tray on a window cill  or in a greenhouse

Bamboo,s are very tough grasses, especially mine have to Last time they got watered was October last year. The only thing I do with them at the moment is prune out the weaker stems & some of the older ones & give them a bit more space. A purchased the black bamboo in 2010 & divided it with a sharp spade in the September & got 5 plants out it 3 large & 2 smaller. Last year the new growth romped away & got up to 10-11 feet in one season.  These & the others  I have are exposed to the elements.

I have about 10 large,medium & small Bamboo,s in pots. I don't water them until the weather improves & gets warmer.
